Several Australian artists enlisted during WWI, both to serve in military roles and also to use art to capture the experiences at the front line.

Hear historian Ross McMullin, author and illustrator Jo Oliver, print scholar Dr Colin Holden and curator Ann Carew discuss some of our most notable war artists, including cartoonist and official war artist Will Dyson; painter and military hospital nurse Jessie Traill; and Norman Lindsay, whose wartime work included producing recruitment posters and cartoons. The panel will be chaired by academic and art historian Professor Alison Inglis.
